don't know about that as someone who lives in downtown manhattan. a lot of us which the iraq war had never happened, but i think had 9/11 not hand, they would have found a way to have the iraq war anyway. you could make the argument that thanks to the work of our troops, and this president, that terrorism has been neutralized more than ever. >> but we don't have hab us corpus now. >> there's that too. for me it is a day that always will remind when people are screaming which side are you on with us or the terrorists. i like to say i'm on the side of anyone who is trying to solve the problems peacefully. >> right. any -- any religion that wants to end violence is fine as long as it's christian. that's your point. >> john: yes as long as it's christian. because violence is okay when my side does it. not religion is responsible hard core right-wing fundamentalists are responsible. >> right. >> john: we see it -- we saw it 11 years ago with the predominantly saudiw terrorists. america was attacked by zero iraqi, and zero afghans. >> yes and the worst attack happened wit
was coined be far different book than this. and then after my military experiences and iraq and afghanistan, and as you started seeing the iranian issued a different light i expanded the scope of the book and spent a good ten years researching and writing this. my wife likes to remind me we haven't had a vacation since 2004. so very much every waking moment of my free time. i took a sabbatical from the government service. i was in the washington think tank for an extended period of time which gave me the freedom away from the government to write and travel. the research is quite interesting. if you're familiar with government records and the modern era, they are not in very good shape. most of them are electronic records. a lot of them have not been saved. so it really is -- we are not finding people who still have records talking to people. obviously archives -- and caspar weinberger giving me access to his papers. one of the best sources was a retired admiral i stumbled into who have really detailed presidential and secretary defense level meeting notes in notebooks he had in the crawl sp

[cheers and applause] [chanting "u.s.a.!" ] you understand that. and they deserve a president who understands that on the most personal level what they've gone through, what they've given and what they've given up for their country. to us, the real test of patriotism is how we treat the men

the spokespersons, we're leaving iraq, we're leaving afghanistan, we're leaving the area, the people in the area are having to adjust and they believe the united states is weak and they are taking appropriate action. bill: also over the weekend congressman mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee and former fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the br

, that killed so many americans in afghanistan we've ever found evidence of in iraq, sorry, the only one we ever found evidence of in afghanistan was an inert one that we believe was left for us to find as a reminder, say, you know, we're only using one hand and only three fingers on that hand. they're not doing that to say because we're fundamentally nice people and we don't want to hurt anybody. i think it is a signal that they're, you know -- there, you know, still is something, perhaps, to talk about. and i would like to see us explore that if we can. now, i've got to tell you, you know, i have one great quality that i've always brought to the foreign service which is my inherent expend about, you know -- expend about, you know? ship him out. if it works, great, if it doesn't, you know, we didn't lose much. [laughter] so i mean an authority to maintain the iranians. i had it, obviously, going back to '01 through '03. had it again the whole time i was in iraq, did so and retained it in afghanistan. couldn't find any afghan -- or any iranian ready to take me up on it. you know, maybe it was be
. over the weekend, you saw al qaeda in iraq, they're back. you saw an incredible amount of attacks. al qaeda in north africa is very active and sifting to algeria and in the aircrafts rainian peninsula and in somalia. we continue to talk about how we decimated this group this, hoargz, they are still there. and when you talk about the fact that you ended the war in iraq, there is only two ways to end a war uwin or you lose. by packing up and leaving, that's not a means to end anything. mast, you embolden your enemies. >> greta: thank you, congressman. >> thank you. >> greta: the day none of us forgets. remembering september 11, a day that forever changed our nation. [ mrs. hutchison ] friday night has always been all fun and games here at the hutchison household. but one dark stormy evening... she needed a good meal and a good family. so we gave her purina cat chow complete. it's the best because it has something for all of our cats! and after a couple of weeks she was part of the family. we're so lucky that lucy picked us.

in the middle east and north africa, as you know. >> the president bragged about ending the war in iraq. people think the united states bailed out. they see us doing nothing in syria and instead doing savage massacres. in the case of libya, we sat on our hands and did very little for 15 months, and the extremist became stronger and stronger. it's is on the freighter during an serious. >> meanwhile, benjamin netanyahu, and barack obama are having a rather public viewed at a time when tensions are rising in the threat by iran seems to be escalating and action by the israeli military seems to be, if benjamin netanyahu is clearly communicated a message, it appears to be clearly near us. >> i have been trying to read this for months and i don't know where it is headed. but i do think the administration bears some responsibility for having the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff start lecturing at the united nations for themselves -- it was almost an indication for netanyahu essay instead of giving us a red light, you could get redline through this. i think this whole discussion should be taking pl
. we'll be joined by former congressman patrick murphy from pennsylvania, iraq war vet first vehicle war vet to serve -- first iraq war vet to serve in the united states congress. it was not exactly the second coming but it was certainly treated that way in the high tech world at any rate with the unveiling of the iphone yesterday. iphone 5 by apple. john herrman is the deputy tech editor of "buzzfeed." joining us this morning on our news line. hey, john, good to talk to you. >> good morning, bill. >> bill: from what you saw yesterday, how good is it and what are the new features of the iphone 5? >> well, it's been a pretty long time since apple has given us a real surprise with the new iphone. this is no different. this is a lot like the iphone 4s. it's got a lot of incremental improvements. it has 4g wireless which will basically make using the phone feel like it is next to wi-fi at all times. it has a new camera. it's got a slightly new case so it's made out of aluminum in the back rather than the extre
. and he trust that had vice president to see the successful end to the war in iraq and the implementation of the recovery act. and joe biden did a great job with both. now, president obama appointed several members of his cabinet even though they supported hillary in the primary. heck, he even appointed hillary. now wait a minute. i am very proud of her. i am proud of the job she and the national security team have done for america. i am grateful that they have worked together to make us safer and stronger to build a world with more partners and fewer enemies. i'm grateful for the relationship of respect and partnership she and the president have enjoyed and the signal that sends to the rest of the world that democracy does not have a -- to be a blood sport. it can be an honorable enterprise that advance it is public interest. besides the national security team i am very grateful to the men and women who served our country in uniform through these perilous times. and i am especially grateful to michelle obama and to jill biden for supporting those military families while their loved ones
is well, and thriving in some places, including iraq, including in syria where there's more and more those kinds of people coming in, including other parts of the middle east. and it's just disgraceful that we would say that an attack such as this was the result of a demonstration. >> disgraceful is a strong word to be used. you've never shied away from that. how can you say you know? >> how can you say when there's an attack with mortars, with heavy weapons, indirect and direct -- anybody who understands warfare, anybody who has the fundamental understanding of warfare knows that that's not a spontaneous demonstration. that's now, norah. >> as you know libya -- what susan rice said on a number of shows over the weekend which you have criticized -- i read this morning. >> i was on after her. she said they had no evidence that it was not a spontaneous demonstration. how could you say that when mortars indirect, direct fire and heavy weapons are being used at this is as a result of a spontaneous demonstration? also incredible to blame it on a video. it's not the video. its the islamist using
soldiers of freedom as much as anybody in afghanistan and iraq. we should all recognize that. i also think we should back up a half step and realize, this is not just about libya. you don't get simultaneously attacks in benghazi and cairo, and libya and egypt on a purely local basis. and you don't get them on 9/11. a day when we're already honoring terrorist attacks in the united states, without a fair amount of collusion and a fair amount of planning. so i think you have to look at this in a larger context. it doesn't matter if the average libyan likes us or dislikes us. there's a substantial faction, particularly in benghazi, which was sending people to iraq to kill americans. there's a substantial faction in egypt which wants to defeat the united states and destroy israel. that faction looks for opportunities to do things to hurt the united states, and yesterday was an example of an attack that's part of a very long war. we're going to be at, i think, for a very, very long time. and we need to have an honest national conversation about how serious this war is. >> mr. speaker, you connec
, including kurds in syria as there are in iraq and iran and turkey, you have a potential situation where you get increased cross water flows of militant groups seeking to have some changes on the borders as well. the last thing the united states wants is for syria to stabilize itself and to destabilize a country that we helped at such great expense in american lives and treasure to put back together after the fall of sadaam hussein. host: call is on the phone on the democratic line. caller: i am surprised at the number of americans and the number of c-span viewers who are not supporters of the united nations. i'm a big supporter. i would like to give an example. the united nations charter and the provisions that could have stopped hitler and world war ii and if we had the united nations in the 1930's. when hitler and his troops marched back into the rhineland, the united nations security council could have applied economic sanctions which would have stopped sweden from selling iron ore to germany. it would have stopped romania from selling oil to hitler. without those, hitler never would hav
or fourth bounce after some military action. what's the aftermath? and the great lesson of the iraq war, to a certain extent, the continuing afghan war is how do you deal with it two months later? four months later? a year later? and of course, in iraq, that was the problem year after year. and so with the lessons of what has occurred in afghanistan and iraq, there is -- i think and david knows more about this -- a great pause in the administration. let's see if we can avoid military action almost at any cost. >> david and bob, in that order, there's obviously a lot of reluctance on the part of the u.s. military to get involved in this there. we've seen reporting on this for the last few months where the pentagon's war gamed this out and thinks it's a very problematic scenario. so the question seems to me, at least in the immediate future, is what is the likelihood that either of you think that israel would go ahead and do this alone in the near term, meaning between now and election day? >> you know, john, that's just guessing. i mean, it's something under 50% in my mind. it's somethin
the crisis in syria, he mentioned the withdrawal of troops from iraq and the draw down from afghanistan and the trouble between israel and the palestinians. but that was all. he essentially was checking the box on all those fronts. and no mention at all of china. in essence, wolf, this was a speech about the two crises that have consumed foreign policy discussion during the u.s. campaign. the tension between israel and iran and now this most recent crisis in libya, wolf. >> with six weeks to go until the election, jessica, tomorrow i take it he's right back out there in the swing states out on the campaign trail? >> reporter: that's right. he is hitting the campaign once again. he will be in the battle groind states. this is campaign season for president obama from here until election day with of course the debates coming up, first debate next week. >> yeah. three presidential debates. one vice presidential debate. jessica, thanks. also in new york city mitt romney speaking at the clinton global initiative just ahead of the president. romney focused on foreign policy as well vowing he w
to the ill conceived war in iraq and signed into law historic health care reform. a dream that was already decades overdue when i called for it at this convention 36 years ago. and he has done it all in the face of bitter, unyielding and in fact unprecedented partisan opposition. overseas, president obama has restored the reputation of the united states within the world community. dialogue and collaboration are once again possible with the return of a spirit of trust and goodwill to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. in communities across america and in countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggles and our hearts go out to them. and in the coming years, our hands must continue to reach out to them. yet for all that remains to be done, at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america, as we have placed the onslaught of some of the most complicated, domestic and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it's up to all of us to make sure that the american pe
in iraq in part. and why you hear republicans in part trying to get us into war with iran and russia. and mitt romney said if you thought it was okay to use bed bath and beyond coverage to get your medicare coverage and you thought you could do without your student loans and the health insurance you needed, but you still wanted romney you cannot afford to have this man in the oval office answering these questions. unfortunately -- and fortunately it seems like people are coming to that conclusion on their own. you have all of your different things, and mitt romney has everything he has ever wanted handed to him on a silver platter. >> john: except the senate and the white house -- >> right but these were all steps along the way. he has sold his soul to the devil to make it so but the sad reality for mitt romney is that the toughest decision he is going to have to make next year is what color of crovot to put on for ballet sports competition, because he is not going to be making any of the decisions he wanted to make in the oval office. >> john: i want to say
, that invading iraq did not change the middle east as many felt it would just by projecting american power. this is in many ways about the kind of leadership that we're seeing take root in the middle east and what leverage the united states have. i think that's a critical question. how the united states using leverage in that part of the world. and what about american public opinion? americans are very frustrated seeing all these images after we give billions of dollars to these countries and have played a role militarily and otherwise helping to free folks, the citizens of libya and egypt from dick ta to dictatorial rule. >> we'll look forward to more of your interview coming up on "met the press." >>> now let's get a check off the morning's top stories. >> good morning, everyone. fbi agents have arrested a man they say planned to detonate a car bomb outside a bar in downtown chicago. more now from michelle franzen. >> reporter: authorities say a bar in chicago's busy downtown was the target friday night of an alleged car bomb plot. planned, investigators say, in a detailed criminal mrant
ghatenn w we no the h realized there was no weapons of mass destruction in iraq. that was the whole reality we lived in, the disillusionment on the right, the confusion in the middle, the anger on the left. they didn't even experience that period of time? >> well, chris, to put a charitably, i think the publican party today is the noalpa thas sense of it having kind of marinated in their world view down in tampa at the republican convention. they think of a simpler world, a world where the verities they believin still apply in simple terms. the fact is it's a complex world. rnnt, if the whole thing is i don't want government, i don't believe in government, then you aren't going to participate in the reality of economic life for one in america today. th're the nostalgia party. they would like to believe that theilitary was correct, that dick cheney was correctbout on mdect thoureto believe in that -- >> but what evidence do they have that we were right about iraq and wmd? >> they don't. what i'm saying i they want to will themselves into believing authority figures who used to be res
suicide bombers in iraq than any country except for saudi arabia. her ambassador ran around syria for the better part of the year, encouraging them to protest, knowing that they would get shot down. this government seems to be trying to make the world a little safer as an anarchy more than anything else. lou: the idea that libya is now arrested four people in regards to that attack. could you explain about the earnest in earnest and honesty about their act? >> i am afraid that i'm getting old and cynical. my guess is that they are kind of like claude rains in casablanca. the libyan government really is, whatever goes on in tripoli, not outside of there, when we supported that revolution, basically what we did was provide their coverage for people, what happened was perfectly predictable. lou: it was tragic. it is tragic that he was put in a constant that is not safe and not protected, taken to a safe house that was anything but that. the idea that we would not have things underground in libya, now it's clear that we're going to have marine boots on the ground in libya and in yemen
to read off the promises he kept. ended the war in iraq, the war in afghanistan, healthcare reform. >> the war in afghanistan is not -- >> depends on the eyes of the beholder. democrats in that hall and democrats for the most part are very happy with a lot of the things this president has done, and they have some understanding of what he's up against, and i think he has some understanding of what he's up against also, which he didn't have when he first got into office. if he gets reelected, he's learned a lot about how to be a president, and i think he's learned how to exercise power. i think we will see a very different barack obama the second four years than we did in the first. >> so this audience grew even more to like him, and it was pretty uniform, was it not? >> well, yes. i mean, they liked him to begin with, and his wife -- >> how do you know they liked him to begin with? >> because the poll shows democrats like their president, a lot of people in general. >> a lot of democrats are disappointed in him the way that a lot of republicans are disappointed in the republican le
